iPhone SE 3 has a similar design to the iPhone SE 2

The iPhone SE 2022 follows the same design as Apple’s entry-level line, launched in 2016. The look is practically the same as the iPhone 8, for example, with thick edges. The phone also still has the Home button and Touch ID integrated into it.

On the official website, Apple sells the iPhone SE 3 as “built to last”. The manufacturer highlights the resistance of the device and the glass that covers the screen and the back. In addition, the SE 3 is IP67 certified, which guarantees resistance to dust and water – in depths of up to one meter for 30 minutes.

iPhone SE 2022 screen also follows standard

The iPhone SE 3rd generation screen hasn’t changed much either. The device follows the 4.7 inches of the iPhone SE 2, with IPS LCD technology and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The new device also has a resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels at 326 dpi. In addition, the manufacturer guarantees a coating that is resistant to fingerprints and oil.

New processor brings gains to iPhone SE 3 cameras

The iPhone SE 2022 hasn’t changed much in terms of the camera either. The settings are practically the same as the iPhone SE 2. Launched to be an entry-level model from Apple, the smartphone is the only recently launched smartphone to have only a rear camera. The 12 MP lens has optical stabilization, f/1.8 aperture and LED flash. On the front, the selfie camera has a resolution of 7 MP (f/2.2).

However, because it has the same processor as the iPhone 13 Pro, the new device has tools that were exclusive to more expensive cell phones. Thus, with the help of artificial intelligence, the cell phone gains more quality when capturing images. The iPhone SE 3, for example, offers Smart HDR 4, Deep Fusion and Portrait mode improvements.

The iPhone SE 2022 still records at up to 4K and 60 gps. The device also has optical stabilization, up to 3x digital zoom and 1080p slow motion video. The new model still takes 8MP photos while recording 4k videos.

The iPhone SE is the most affordable device for those who want to enter the “Apple world”. But if you’ve ever been curious to know which cell is the most expensive in the world

Apple promises advances in the battery of the new iPhone SE 3

Apple did not disclose the size of its battery. But, in the projections made by the manufacturer, the new iPhone SE 3 has advances compared to its predecessor. The newly released model has usage sovereignty for up to 15 hours of video playback. The iPhone SE 2, on the other hand, supported 13 hours.

The new model also supports 10 hours of continuous video streaming, while the previous one had an autonomy of 8 hours. The iPhone SE 3 also has up to 50% recharge in 30 minutes with a 20W or higher power adapter. Please note that the charger is sold separately.

iPhone SE 3 advances with A5 Bionic processor

Let’s go, then, to the highlight of the new iPhone SE 3. The biggest change of the launch is its Apple A15 Bionic chip. The processor is the same as the iPhone 13 line. Because of it, the cell phone already has support for the 5G network, in addition to other improvements, such as the camera, as we have already mentioned.

The A15 Bionic chip features a high-performance dual-core CPU in addition to four high-efficiency cores. The GPU, or video card, in turn, has four other cores.

The chipset still has 3GB of RAM, in addition to internal storage from 64GB to 256GB. The processor is the big improvement over its predecessor. The iPhone SE 2 still had the A13 Bionic, an earlier version of the Apple chip.
